Five Tree Hill Country Park

Five Tree Hill Country Park is a 52-acre public park located just south of Sunset Hill Road in the rural southern-central portion of Williston. The property was conveyed to the Town of Williston from O’Brien Brothers Agency, Inc. on March 28, 1991, as a condition of approval for the South Sunset Hill Estates Subdivision (SUB 89-3). Although relatively small in size, the predominately forested landscape provides excellent opportunities for residents to experience the woods and its wildlife just a short distance from downtown Williston.  

Two trails run through the wooded interior of the property, a primitive hiking trail and a snowmobile trail created and maintained by Vermont Association of Snow Travelers (VAST). The trails reach a grassy knoll aptly named “Five Tree Hill.” This hilltop of 860 feet was once marked by five stately sugar maple trees and provides for some of the most beautiful views in Chittenden County. A look to the east affords a postcard image of the Green Mountains, and to the west, Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks are visible in full splendor. The summit area is very popular for picnicking and general relaxation. 

The Park is managed with the joint goals of providing outdoor recreation for residents and protecting the natural features of the park. The management plan is available via the links below.
